All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, seeks permission to conduct All India Postgraduate Medical / Dental Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) for admission to PG Medical courses across India.
AIPGMEE exam is conducted for filling 50% of government seats across India.
In June 2013, NEET PG scores were accepted to fill the PG Medical seats. On 18 July, Supreme Court has quashed the NEET exam from 2014. The bench has set aside the notification of MCI to making common entrance exam.
Now, AIIMS seeks Supreme Court permission to conduct the AIPGMEE exam. This exam is applicable to all states and union territory of India, except two states i.e., Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.
CBSE had already issued a notification on conducting AIPMT exam for the year 2014.
Around one lakh students will get benefit from this, once the SC grants permission to hold the entrance exam.
AIPGMEE exam was conducted by AIIMS. In 2013, the PG Medical entrance exam NEET PG was conducted by National Board of Examination (NBE), New Delhi.
The hearing of National Boards petition is dated on 21 Oct 2013.
The board is expecting the same result of quashing NEET UG exam like it happens for NEET PG exam.
"It has become necessary for the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to revive the previous regime for filling the PG medical seats for the year 2014 and onwards by holding All India Entrance Examination for Post-Graduate Courses for filling the 50% All India Quota Seats," NBE Additional Director Anurag Agarwal said in the petition.
